Evidence has been mounting that female monarch butterflies are better at flying and more successful at migration than males, and researchers from the University of Georgia have now come up with an explanation--but not one they expected.  View News Article (2015-11-04)

Simple math may solve longstanding problem of parasite energetics
Feeling faint from the flu? Is your cold causing you to collapse? Your infection is the most likely cause, and, according to a new study by UC Santa Barbara research scientist Ryan Hechinger, it may be possible to know just how much energy your bugs are taking from you. View News Article (2013-07-03)

Conservation from space: Landscape diversity helps to conserve insects
Rugged, hilly landscapes with a range of different habitat types can help maintain more stable butterfly populations and thus aid their conservation, according to new findings published today (8 February 2010) in the journal Ecology Letters. View News Article (2010-02-08)

Distribution of British soil bacteria mapped for the first time
Britain's soil bacteria have been mapped for the first time in the most comprehensive study of a country's soil biodiversity to date. The results are published today (20 April 2011) in the journal Environmental Microbiology. View News Article (2011-04-20)

Are tropical forests resilient to global warming?
Tropical forests are less likely to lose biomass - plants and plant material - in response to greenhouse gas emissions over the twenty-first century than may previously have been thought, suggests a study published online this week in Nature Geoscience.  View News Article (2013-03-11)

British butterfly is evolving to respond to climate change
As global temperatures rise and climatic zones move polewards, species will need to find different environments to prevent extinction. New research, published today in the journal Molecular Ecology, has revealed that climate change is causing certain species to move and adapt to a range of new habitats. View News Article (2011-11-30)

On the origin of theory: Were forensic examiners first to uncover 'ecological succession'?
